The 93 LWB i recently picked up is setting coils I'm trying to identify. Does anyone know what they are?

The fronts are dark blue and labeled "BDM NRC4306 F EIGHT". The NRC number crosses to RR springs with Blue and White stripes, but these don't appear to be genuine RR springs to me.

The rears are a slightly lighter blue and appear to be progressive wound. i haven't found any markings on then so have a little less to go on, on than on the fronts. Not that it is critical to identification, but apparently whoever installed them put one in upside down.

Thanks for any info you can provide.

If those were LR springs they would be black with a blue vertical strip and a white vertical stripe parallel to each other across each layer of the coils. They would most likely be for the front left corner on a left hand drive petrol. They may be Britpart, Bearmach... etc.

they used to be sold under the name BIG BLUE, can't recall the seller. for some reason DAP-INC rings a bell as a distributor of these.

Thanks for the info. I do remember hearing of "Big Blue" springs. It seems that the fronts and rears are likely different suppliers based on finish and labeling. the paint on the fronts seems to have held up quire well and the labels are easy to read. The rears don't appears to have any part numbers visible and there is some surface rust coming through. does anyone know the spec's (free length and spring rate) on the "Big Blue" springs?

Thanks,

I don't know if specs were ever divulged, you could try DAP if they were the original distributors.
